    Just wondering if anyone else has experience with these rods. Last spring, we found a Rhino Glowtip, heavy action rod with an Abu 6500C3 reel along the river bank after the water level had dropped. After cleaning off the barnacles and everything, the reel works fine, and my grandson is using the combo. The rod seems to be pretty strong, and feels good. I only own one other rhino, a casting rod/reel combo someone gave me as a gift. It is a lighter duty combo that I use for smaller fish, but I have caught some really big fish on it, including a spinner shark about 5' long.

    We purchasd two last year on my son's birthday trip to Cabela's. With a terrible year last year, we didnt use them much, but sure liked them when we did. Seemed to have good sensitivity and holds up to a kids abuse/use. Hope yours likes it as much as mine. Aren't found treasures nice. I have many in my tackle box and shop. Like trophies you dont have to throw back.
